BERLIN - Bayer Leverkusen has regained fourth place in the Bundesliga with a 4-1 romp at Nuremberg in their battle to retain their Champions League place for next season.

Goals by Leverkusen's Bosnia centre-back Emir Spahic and Poland left-back Sebastian Boenisch cancelled out Marvin Plattenhardt's first-half equaliser as the visitors went 2-1 up soon after the break.

Leverkusen's South Korea star Son Heung-Min made sure of the victory when he sprinted clear on a counter-attack and drew the defence for Spahic to tap home his second with ten minutes left.

Ex-Germany international Roberto Hilbert grabbed Leverkusen's fourth seven minutes later having come off the bench.

"We want a Champions League place and we won't rest until we get it," said Leverkusen's director of sport Rudi Voeller.

Leverkusen lead Wolfsburg by a point with just three games left to decide Germany's fourth Champions League place after Wolves had spent 24 hours in fourth after Sunday's 3-1 win at Hamburg.
